Embrace the danger.”

Blurb: Sean Rush is an adrenaline junkie. That’s why he was in the Army, why he steals and races classic muscle cars . . . and why he can’t stay away from bad boy Ryker, a Havoc Motorcycle Club lieutenant. Fortunately, Ryker can’t seem to stay away from Sean—he’s spent the last eight months breaking into Sean’s apartment and stealing into his bed, leaving Sean physically satisfied but increasingly restless.

Sean has always avoided relationships. He likes to come and go without being controlled. And Ryker is possibly the most controlling man he’s ever known. Still, he finds that he wants more from Ryker than their silent nighttime encounters.

Then one of Sean’s thefts goes bad, and Ryker’s protective instincts kick into overdrive. He takes Sean to the Havoc compound, determined to keep him safe. But Sean’s past threatens the safety of Havoc—and everything Ryker holds dear. Worse, Ryker’s hiding secrets of his own. Soon it’s obvious that the adrenaline rush can’t keep them together anymore. But maybe love can. Continue reading Running Wild (A Havoc Novel)

Blurb:  After three years in Chicago, Payton Grady returns home to Seattle to take a job as a paralegal in his friend’s law firm. After arriving, he sees a gorgeous club kid who accidentally leaves an interesting scarf behind at the bus stop. In a silly attempt to locate the owner, Payton’s best friend places an ad on Craigslist. Two years later, Payton and his friend are shocked to receive a response from the erstwhile club kid—his ex-boyfriend from college.

Payton is drawn to Noah and how much he’s grown. Now that Noah knows he’s good enough for love, both men remember what they had, while moving past the hurt they caused each other so long ago. Maybe they can be good enough together. Continue reading Good Enough

A Blog Is Born

dosomethingWhit and I recently lost our blog home. Unfortunately, we weren’t ready to stop giving our opinions on books. We found ourselves faced with the prospect of having to start our own blog or review for someone else, but we didn’t want to risk having another blog close when we weren’t done. Bravely, probably foolishly, we decided we could be bloggers.

Whit And Faye’s Fantastic Lazy Excellent Super Blog of Books was born! We wisely decided that was not the best name even though it was absolutely hilarious to us. The W.A.F.F.L.E.S blog didn’t exactly sound professional. We both threw out some names that were not very good or one of us completely hated. Finally, we cameanigif_enhanced-buzz-29175-1378874457-20 to the conclusion that we both didn’t hate It’s About The Book. A blog was born.

We have plans to bring readers reviews of both LGBTQ and heterosexual romance stories or stories with a romantic component. Who am I kidding? Stories with no romance will sneak in, too. Given the sheer number of cookbooks and cocktail books I read I’m sure there will be at least a couple of reviews of those. So, we plan on bringing you a mixed bag of mostly romance, both new releases and old.

There will be a lot of familiar faces here at It’s About The Book. Most of the reviewers we’ve got lined up have been reviewing for a while. We also plan on adding new reviewers for fresh perspectives and varying opinions.

So, after much back and forth and wandering around, Whit and I would like to welcome you to our new blog. We’re here because we like to rhelloead and discuss books. We hope you’ll like and follow us as well as join in the discussion.
